Renter’s Rights 101

Congratulations to Mt. Scott – Arleta Neighborhood Association for securing a small neighborhoods grant from SEUL (Southeast Uplift) and the Office of Community and Civic Life. The grant will be used toward a much-needed Renter’s Rights Training:

In conjunction with CAT (Community Alliance of Tenants) the MSANA will present a 2-hour training to help community members understand how to become better equipped at locating, securing and retaining affordable and adequate housing. Using an accessible, public location, we will offer free food, childcare and translation services to encourage attendance by communities that need this training most. Please see details below.

Thanks also to contributions and assistance from our partners in adjoining neighborhoods:

  • Foster-Powell
  • Creston-Kenilworth

Mt. Scott-Arleta Land Use Notices: Get Help

Did you know that your neighborhood association can offer assistance and support when you receive notice of a land use proposal or decision?

Land-Use-Proposal-random-example

If you have questions about a notice, feel free to contact the Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Association (MSANA) Land Use Chair (msanalandusechair@gmail.com). We can help you understand and respond to notices.

Please keep in mind that responses to proposals and appeals of decisions are limited to addressing the relevant Zoning Code approval criteria. Not liking the idea of a new development does not mean that we can effectively oppose it! However, the MSANA Land Use Chair can help you understand your options in responding to land use notices.

Shoot us an email at msanalandusechair@gmail.com and we can work together on the land use issues that matter to you.

The neighborhood could learn from you…

"share your ideas with your neighbors" text with a lightbulb drawn on a sticky noteThe Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Association wants to share our neighbors’ community projects, nonprofit services, or learning opportunities at upcoming General Meetings!

If you represent a community-minded project or organization that neighbors could learn from or partner with, let us put you on a future agenda to share a short presentation. Meetings are typically the first Wednesday of the month, at 6:30 p.m. at the Mt. Scott Community Center.

Email msana.chair@gmail.com to propose your 20-minutes-or-less presentation and get on a future agenda!

Can you help the neighborhood on Sept. 29?

If you’ve ever walked, biked, skateboarded or driven past SE 72nd & Woodstock Boulevard, you’ve seen the Arleta Triangle.  Lots of folks see it every day and don’t know that it’s a project of your Mt. Scott-Arleta Neighborhood Association.

Volunteers give a few hours to maintain the space every month. From planting native plants, to picking up litter, to big projects — it’s all done by our neighbors.

But we’re going to need a LOT of neighbors on Sept. 29th to accomplish our biggest project yet – installing a new brick patio in the center of the space.  Volunteers will be needed to move blocks, set the blocks, and make sure everything is level.

If you can help, sign up now on our Facebook event. We’re going to need at least 20 volunteers committed to get the project done.  We’ll provide coffee, snacks, and a Mt. Scott-Arleta neighborhood t-shirt for everyone who participates! Contact Meghan Humphreys at laurameg@comcast.net if you have questions about volunteering.
